This a genetics lab where students use pennies and probability to determine the traits of a child that they will create. Students will determine what their child's chin, ears, teeth, lips, nose, hairline, hair color, eyes, & eyelashes. Fill in a chart with the alleles and then draw their child. Great lab that deals with dominant and recessive traits while giving students ownership over their end product.
